(Mystery Knitting: A scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts in Misti Alpaca. This is our wool anniversary and while technically not wool, it's still very nice. And the Dude liked it. A lot.)
Let's be honest. I looked good. So did the MS3.
I've been thinking about lasting relationships lately. I know some people who have recently separated. One of the partners decided that they needed something or someone more glamorous. It's funny that love is more about the long haul than the jump off the line. My husband and I knew each other for four years before we started dating. Neither was what the other thought. We surprised ourselves and our friends by our match and while we've had the chance to do some fun things like travel and enjoy great food and drink, it's the everyday that I appreciate the most. Coffee in the morning. (My Dude makes great coffee. Just ask my Mom. He tells me it's the three shots of espresso he lovingly puts into each cup. What a man!) Taking the girlie to the park. A little after-dinner vino. Trips to the deli. Glamor is great but it never lasts. There's always something newer and fancier. I'll take classic every time. A man who has stood the test of time and has never let me down.
So here's to the every day stuff that we forget to appreciate. Thank you, Dude. I love you. And after seven years, I'm not itchy.
I hope you aren't either.
